Captain America Figure To Join NFT Ranks
With the rapid growth of NFTs, it was perhaps only a matter of time before more major players got involved.
It is now reported that Marvel intends to secure its place in the trending asset with more superhero collectables.
Following the success of Spider-Man NFTs in August, Marvel is said to be releasing Captain America NFT collectibles soon.
They will mark the 80th anniversary of Captain America, who first appeared in 1941, and allow fans to buy digital statues displaying him as he first appeared.
For the NFT rollout, Marvel partnered with VeVe and Orbis Blockchain Technologies, with the collectables minted and made available for users on VeVe’s marketplace.
Batman Joins the Hype
Marvel isn’t alone in stepping up its NFT presence. DC Comics worked with VeVe to launch its own collectable, which included a black and white-themed collection of digital Batman statues.
The NFT market continues to see major growth. For example, the biggest NFT marketplace in the Ethereum blockchain, Opensea, had transactions valued at $3.4 billion. Demand for collectables continues and shows no signs of slowing down.
